Experience the Sounds of Summer on Sado Island
Join us for three days of fun for the whole family on Sado Island this summer at the 30th annual Earth Celebration! The theme of this year’s festival is “Taiko no Kodomo,” which means “Taiko Children,” and we’ll all have a ball together to the beat of the taiko drums! The lineup includes open-air and playhouse Kodo concerts, an array of workshops and activities, a bustling market, performances on the Fringe stage, and much, much more!
Aug. 18 (Fri)–20 (Sun), 2017
Events will take place all over Sado Island in Niigata, centered around the Ogi Peninsula
